Chapter 6
Back in Kondowe, Dr and Mrs Mwandikaulaya spend the first two months resting and visiting relatives uncle Ndomondo being one of them, he was now advanced in age, it took him time to understand how his marriage (Richard) had gone back to normal, Hosanna and Richard were anxious to see their daughter but Ndomondo told them that she had gone to Ushisha with his friend Joshua Chikawe who has promised to take her to the best schools in Ushisha but as time went by he stopped writing and Ndomondo was now too old to travel to the city. This information did not please Richard and his wife, it only increased their worries and so Richard had to travel to ushisha. Afterwards they visited Aunt Paulina who was very excited to see them and the grandchildren he was also advanced in age.
Richard also went to Namatvi to see father Malyunga who was now the priest in charge he spoke of his intentions to build a hospital some were in Unyanja. At this time saint Theresa hospital was in a despicable condition there were no drugs and no equipments. Father had no objections and advised him to use the same hospital, to renovate it so as to avoid expenses of having to build a new one. He was even free to change the name if he had to. Dr. Hoffman also paid a visit and agreed
to help Dr. Richard with some unused equipments back at Ngerenge. When the renovations were complete Dr. Richard begin work immediately with Hosana in the maternity wing. They charged nominal fee only considering the financial status of the people.
Worries about their daughter increased and Richard decided to contact his friend Duncan Kaona who was a doctor in Lundo, the capital of Ushisha asking him to find about the were about of her daughter and the man called Joshua Chikawe in a small town called Chita Dr. Kaona wrote back informing Richard that Joshua chikawe had died of cholera and had claimed many lives in the chisita area of ushisha and that no one knew were Marietta may have gone if she survived the outbreak. This did nothing to away the fears of the mwandikaulayas plane, was the easiest way to reach ushisha but all flights start from lilungo so Dr. Richard had to travel to Lilungu to catch his plane to Lundo. Arriving lilungu Richard stayed at a new built Mapinduzi Hotel after having lunch he felt the very urge to around places he knew since he had worked there before. He noticed some small changes. He saw shop named D.M.S Grocery on the way past the house he had lived then. He saw an old man who was kind of familiar to him but he never bothered and also a woman. From there he decided to go to the port area, approaching the area he heard two people talking one was Mr. Thaidi and the other was Mr. Malipula according to the conversation he was having. They spoke of what had happened to people who did evil now that they believe in God, especially Malipula who was more like confessing.
Richard found it hard to believe that in reality the man and woman he saw was old Dickson Mtekateka and the former G.M of course and the woman was Dr. Mawalla’s wife who later got married to the old Dickson. He pictures the lady he had seen back in the party the elegantly depressed lady standing on the steps on her Kabisela avila. Back in the hotel Richard relived his afternoon experiences and found himself recalling the words spoken by professor Huxley in his death bed that affairs of man are directed from above. The plane took one hour to land at lundo airport. Dr. Kaona was at airport to meet is friend. The following saturday Dr. Kaona felt the need to show him around. He took him to famous night club in Lundo, it was situated in the outskirts of the city. The club was beautiful itself through much of what is said about it. Only the best bands were allowed to play. Through this Richard was able o realise why ushisha was to famous for its dances. Dr Kaona ordered drinks for both of them. He was also a man who coved dancing and could not help the good music. Richard also had to join in with other.
